💌RSD 2018 ANNOUNCEMENT💌
We are pleased to inform you that the long overdue reissue of MY LIFE AS A WOMAN will be happening this summer. Preorders will begin in June and there should be copies available to attendees of this year's Migration Fest. Since the first round was a bit of a debacle, we also decided it would be in our best interest to just start a label and do the whole thing ourselves. Limited to 500 copies, first release by Kincsem Records. (Photos by Steve from the now-defunct R Bar Brooklyn)
LONG LIVE THE SLUT
We are playing in New Haven on Friday and we recently answered some questions from Alternative Control, which you can read here:
ICYMI we released a new thing with our pals MICROWAVES via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia. It features a Couch Slut original as well as a cover of "Babylon Sisters" by the great Steely Dan, as well as artwork by Shawn Knight.
Wm M Berger was a beacon of taste and integrity. There was no bullshit, no angles, no puff pieces, no hot takes, no clickbait, handwringing or disingenuous self promotion. It was about the music. He was a lover of music, and the way that he championed the things he loved was nothing short of brilliant. We are honored and blessed to have known him and to have considered him a friend and co-conspirator. This is a tremendous loss. Our deepest condolences go out to William's fam...ily and friends, and to anyone to whom My Castle Of Quiet was important. To us it was a vital program. William was an early supporter of our group. We played live in studio for him back in January '15, and when it came time to debut our new record, there was no choice but to do it on Castle. For anyone unfamiliar with the man and his work, we encourage you to dive headfirst into old Castle playlists, as each one is an absolute treasure trove of incredible music and a living monument to his genius.

We will have copies of the CONTEMPT LP (Gilead Media) as well as advance copies of our upcoming split with MICROWAVES (on Sleeping Giant Glossolalia - in stores 9/15) for sale tonight as we kick off our ASSPIPE TOUR 2017 at Saint Vitus Bar with our friends Pyrrhon, who are also celebrating the release of their (excellent) new record, and Replicant and Mob Terror.
UPDATE: our 9/5 show is staying in Cincinnati but is now at Northside Yacht Club. Event page in comments.
Our sincerest thanks to Joe Owen and others who reached out to us.
ATTN: CINCI, LOUISVILLE, ETC.:...
Help! The venue we were scheduled to play in Cincinnati on 9/5 is closing TOMORROW. If you or anyone you know can help us find a show to jump on, or a venue to try to book a show at, in Cincinnati, Louisville, or nearby areas (on 9/5), please let us know! THANKS!
We will be hitting the road to play a run of 9 shows between August 31 and September 9. This is our ASSPIPE TOUR 2017. Event pages are in the comments below, and can be seen under the "Events" tab to the left.
Contempt is officially released today. Couch Slut would like to give its sincerest thanks to all of the people who helped make this happen, including (but certainly not limited to) Adam Bartlett and Gilead Media, Davindar Singh, Leo Svirsky, Siv Brun Lie, Jen Baker, William Lang, Dan Peck, Caley Monahon-Ward, Amy Mills, James Plotkin, Leandro De Cotis, and Curran Reynolds.
Wm Berger's My Castle Of Quiet on WFMU is a treasure trove of musical wonders. We're honored to be on it once again, this time with our full album premiere. Tune in TONIGHT to listen with us. 12 AM ET.
